THE SKINNY

STL 001 000 014 – 6 18 2
CIN 100 011 200 – 5 12 0
W-MDaniel L-Jeffcoat SV-Paine HR: Freese GWRBI-Noren
The Cards, having a much better month of June, ambush Cincy with a stunning four-run rally in the 9th off Haddix and Hal Jeffcoat. Down 5-2, Musial, Boyer and Flood all single and Gene Green doubles. Katt whiffs but Blasingame singles and Noren pinch hits a sac fly for the winner. The Reds built their lead with the help of five doubles until their constant pitching bugaboo failed them again. Trading reliever Johnny Klippstein and bench slugger Steve Bilko to L.A. for starter/reliever Don Newcombe may yet pay dividends, though.
